Trans died. Is this normal??

I just had my transmission pour our fluid after a 4 hour highway drive. Truck is a 1999 DRW CC with only 55k and has never done any heavy towing.

The trans never gave any warning and was shifting fine until I stopped and noticed the fluid. Repair shop tells me there is metal in the mix, the torque converter was off alignment and I need a bunch of other stuff (rebuild pack, solenoid, etc).

What I would like to know is if this is common for a low use low mileage trans to fail like this?
